GEOACT- Fourth Call for Proposals to improve climate resilience in the Caribbean region

GEOACT is launching a new Call for Proposals focused on ‘Setting up living labs and developing smart solutions to face geohazards and climate change’. The deadline is 12 December 2022.

GEOACT aims to improve collaboration in the Caribbean region between civil society organisations (CSOs), citizens, entrepreneurs, innovators, universities, research centers, regional organisations and public authorities (in so-called ‘‘living labs’) in order to develop inclusive, smart and sustainable innovative solutions (based on end-users needs) that will enable Caribbean countries to adapt to the effects of natural hazards and climate change.

GEOACT  is implemented by a consortium of 6 partners: IRD (Research Institute for Development) (Project coordinator); Association of Caribbean States (ACS), Trinidad &Tobago; Caribbean Science Foundation (CSF), Barbados; Fondation FOKAL, Haiti; Sir Arthur Lewis Community College (SALCC), St. Lucia; Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF), Haiti.

GEOACT is one of the 12 projects that have received funding from the European Union under the ACP Innovation Fund which is part of the OACPS R&I Programme.
